necessity of 

knowing each

In order that

be simplified, 
their spellings 
are also desired 

to be made

Is ESPERANTO Worth Learning ?— Most Decidedly 

The International Language was used with much mutual benefi 

by the Universal Red Cross Societies. 
With a view to this scientifically-evolved and easily-acquired Lan-I 
guage becoming the means of intercommunication after the War, 
business people in several countries are satisfactorily preparing for 
" the good time coming." Britons learned Esperanto sooner than 
they could the Russian alphabet, and foreigners acquire a fluent 
use of Esperanto long, long before they can understand our words 
and the fickleness of our spelling.

WE have again diligently collected and carefully 
arranged the useful and up-to-date information 
regarding Buteshire — the Officials for the whole county 
and its individual parishes, and Householders and Busi- 
ness people in the more enterprising districts. 

Notwithstanding the continued very high prices, we 
have striven to maintain oar Directory as full as in pre- 
war times, and that without a subsequent commensurate 
advance of rates. With the continued support of former 
patrons, we, with patient industry, will continue in the 
way of well-doing. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, we, with prompt receipt of orders, we 
will keep permanent this decided benefit. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire is omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

[For a number of years we have corresponded, per the 
International Language, with persons in all civilised lands, 
and in our spare pages we again give glimpses of some our 
propaganda — which, we trust, will here interest those who 
hope for international peace, good-will and harmony.] 

Those who wish Lists of Householders arranged in 
Streets or Districts can get that in the Official Voters' Boll 
— in whole or in parts. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes.

The Opinions of the Press and the Acknowledgments of Libraries 

are as complimentary as ever. The " Glasgow Evening News " makes the following 
appreciation of " Local Colour. — The compilers of the Bute County Directory 
have an ingenious method of making up the local colour and stimuiating local pride. 
Instead of tilling tip the Calendar with the stock anniversaries, they have put against 
each date a local happening." Thus — [Two events mentioned]. " It is certainly an 
id«a that makes for ' atmosphere. ' "

acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts.

Parish of North Bute. 

' I 'HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
* village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Karnes Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
jountry, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the 1921 census, (taken in June instead of April) the parish contained 120i 
males and 1529 females — total, 2730.

"great tribulation" — caused by covetousness, selfishness, greed, and wanton hindrance 
to peaceful re-construction. The efficacy of the International language in tracing miss- 
ing friends and making new ones has been and is being repeatedly evidenced. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esperanto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
"meek who shall inherit the earth." The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
were beaten, but Righteousness is yet to be exalted, and f rightfulness loathed. The 
longed-for League of Nations is evolving, when harmony and good-will shall yet reign 
in spite of all present discord and opposition — but not without many sacrifies, much 
tervice and suffering. Prosperity will nut come through desiring something for no- 
thing, but through universal patient industry for the public good.

Internationa] Language. 



back appointed a Committee to enquire into the 
practicability of an International Auxiliary 
Language. The committee published an interim 
report in 192 1 recording the conclusions that an 


is practicable, that Latin and Existing National 
Languages are unsuitable, and that an "Artificial'' 
or Synthetic Language is best. 

Since that date the Committee have further 
considered the matter, and have now finally deicded 
to recommend the Adoption of 


Parish of Kingarth. 

THIS parish is rich in ecclesiastical history. The Irish Bishop, St Cattan, landed 
here in the year 439. He was uncle of the famous St Blane. The parish includes 
the popular village of Kilchattan Bay, which is about seven miles from Rothesay, and 
h^s regular connection bv steamer and 'bus. The population in 1891 was 1062 ; hi 
1901, 1056; in 1911. 9*67 ; and in 1921, 644 males ; 836 females; total, 1480 

(For Courts arid Court Officials, Justices of the Peace, and County Boards,

TIME. Under the appropriate heading, 


A Wasted Year," 

there appeared, on 3rd May, 1924, a Special Article in the 
Evening Citizen, Glasgow, showing that this is the time lost 
in the life of every child in Britain while acquiring the ir- 
regular and inconsistent spelling of our language. 

The Simplified Speling Society is promoting a 
petition to present to the Prime Minister, calling for the 
appointment of a Royal Commission — including Scholars, 
Teachers, Men of Letters and Men of Business — to consider 
the whole question, and report. 

Experiments already made by enthusiasts have proved 
eminently satisfactory, and shows how much valuable time 
will be saved for other studies by the removal of the speling 

The Speling Reformers include all classes of the people, 
and the question is not a party one.

The Isle of Arran. 

r r^HIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
J. the variety of its geological deposits. The island is twenty miles in length 
twelve in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
on the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their postponed Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed 
some very interesting sheep dog trials — which lengthened their stay

A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), but it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular among those who work for human brotherhood. 

We produced Victory Commemoration Bookmarks — in con- 
nection with the Armistice, the Signing of Peace and the succeed- 
ing Joy Day Celebrations, — which were considered very appro- 

Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxesfull of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We frequently respond to newspaper appeals, and 
the following is one of the acknowledgments we received :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rolhesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad who enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on tiie 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town are 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonials and others on holiday in this country, have thanked us personally for 
sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away ; and others have reciprocated by 
sending preserved leaves and flowers from their distant lands. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become exceedingly popular. 
Botanical Specimens go through the post at letter or parcel rates.

The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in business. 

The earliest publications connected with .Rothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreciated, 
but embraces the whole of the Count y of Bute — 
from the outlying districts of which more interest 
is respectfully solicited. 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wastes, we have been compelled to raise our tari Y 
from pre-war issue, but that advance is not nearly 
equal to the increased cost of production : We de- 
sire not the curtailing of our information, but th^ 
continuing of everything as full as possible.

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years. The Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
foi them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for possible additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue 1 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland."

The Commercial Library, 21 Miller Street, 
18th July, 1918. 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Publishers, Rothesay. 

We have to thank you for the copy of the Bute County Directory, addressed to 
the Stirling Library. Since November, 1916, all Directories have been transfer! ed to 
The COMMERCIAL LIBRARY, 21 Miller Street. This library has been established 
for the use of business men, and. as since its opening, we have had over 49,000 visit- 
tors, more than one-third of whom consulted the Directories, you will appreciate the 
publicity your Directory obtains. 

Yours faithfully, 

Jno Phillips, Libraiian. 

This Directory came out regularly during the stren- 
ous years of the Great War. 

We are striving to keep the lists as full as ever during 
the present time oi industrial depression. Being optim- 
ists, we hope we shall win success. 

The Opinions of the Press on the latter issues are 
as complimentary as formerly. 

The "ca' canny" and similar anti- British tactics are paralysing progress and pre- 
venting prosperity. Unless there is a determined rivival of Industry, what must 
the harvest be? It is not through the guile and covetous selfishness of the wicked 
and thoughtless, but through righteous Regeneration that peace and prosperity 
will be regained. 

People are willing to spend money on Holidays as well as on Business, but the 
blight of strikes, love of idleness and dreams of getting something for nothing , are 
up in opposition. 

The Revival of the Touring Season. 

The following sample enquiry letter was received after the War was over : — 

Sandown Station Road, Stechford, Birmingham, 12th June, 1919. 
Messrs Hig-gie & Co., ABC COAST GUIDE, &c. 
I shall be much obliged if you kindly send me names of any apartments you can 
recommend at Craiirmore, Wemyss Bay, Millport, Craigendoran, and Tarber' * My 
Guide is 1904. Thanking you in anticipation, yours faithfully, Wm. T. Jonks. 
♦Districts included in The Coast Guide. 
The above shows the Pleasures the public are again longing for but not engoying to 

the fall because of the " ca' canny " policy and the charm of living of the rates. 
The callous numbining of Busy Hives of Industry throughaut the country is ruinous. 
Charity is a splendid virtue, but it should not not be allowed to encourage pauperism.

When Man to Man the World o'er, 
Shall Brithers be and a' that."

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races u( Humanity oh 
the Earth, and when we fell from the high est ite in which we were created by 
our disobedience, Jesus Christ redeemed us his Gospel of " | eace on earth and good 
will to men" is to be preached to every creature, and " the gates of hell shall not prevail 
.against it." The confusion of tongues at Babel is being followed by the gift of the 
perfect langnage foretold by Zephaniah. The walls of Jericho fell before the sounding 
of the rams' horns at the command of Joshua, and the lingual walls, which have hither- 
to divided the nations, need no longer, through the genius of another Israelite, prevent 
"all people that on earth do dwell" — whatever their creeds, colours or idiosyncrasies — 
from satisfactorily communicating with each other by means of 

Tne International Language.

Esperanto, like En<;i,ish, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfir of the 11th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there.and a l'uta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreso. 
The 12th Kongreso Internacia was held at the Hague, Holland, in 1920; the 
13th at Prague, in 1921 ; the 14th at Helsingfors, Finnland, in 1922 ; the 15th at 
Niirnberg last year, and the 16th at Vienna this August. 

Esperanto— the language of peace on Earth and universal brotherh6od is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work <f all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work and tracing the missing. It was a veritable open sesame 
into everything good. The world-wide Boy Scout movement has taken op the study 
of la kaia lingvo. It was used at the great international Jamboree in London, a 
meeting so happy and harmonicus that it was appropriately closed by the singing of 
Auld Langsyne. Esperanto is more easily learned than alphabets of some languages, 
and as it has no politics, religion, or physical force or selfish aims of any nation, but 
is pie-eminehtly pro bono publico, and peculiarly fitted for cementing and making per- 
manent and happy the coming efficiency of the League of Nations. That organisa- 
ation has unanimously recommended the official and universal adoption of Espenanto, 
and its teaching in the schools of all civilised countries. 1924 

The Introductory pagps of this publication had the distinction of being
